COVINGTON, Ga. — Jeremiah Holloman is on his way to Georgia.

That little bit of news became public with a little video that included a couple of mischievous Santas and introduced the term “Savage” into the Georgia football fan’s daily vocabulary.

The two-time state triple jump champion committed to Georgia with his good friend Malik Herring on Dec. 1.

Holloman told DawgNation he signed his financial aid papers with UGA a couple of months before that, but that didn’t stop Newton High School from honoring him with his own “Signing Day” ceremony on Thursday.

The Hollomans all said a few words about the nation’s No. 19 receiver who currently ranks as the top-rated receiver among the Class of 2017 commitments for Georgia.

That ceremony came upon the completion of his high school experience. He will be an early graduate and this was his last week at Newton High.

What stood out to Holloman? He said that he was touched when his mother said a few words prior to the ceremony.

The 4-star receiver will enroll early at Georgia in January. DawgNation was on hand on Thursday to capture his signing event and the school ceremony for its Facebook Live audience.

It’s worth repeating that LJ Holloman, Jeremiah’s older brother, will also enroll at Georgia this summer. He will be a preferred walk-on that hopes to show out enough in practices to earn a full scholarship at Georgia of his own.

DawgNation was on hand on Thursday to capture his signing event and the school ceremony for its Facebook Live audience.

 

That broadcast allowed Georgia fans the chance to ask Holloman a few questions of their own.

DawgNation Facebook follower Bryce Dixon asked Holloman which school he was looking forward to playing the most in college.

What was his answer? You’ll have to watch the video to learn just how the future sports marketing and sports management major answered that question.
